Auckland motorway incidents set to cause rush-hour chaos

Two incidents on Auckland’s motorway network are set to cause chaos as traffic builds for the afternoon commute.

Waka Kotahi/NZTA sent alerts at around 3pm this afternoon warning of incidents on both the Southern and Northern Motorways.

One lane was blocked at the top of the Esmonde Rd northbound off-ramp on the Northern Motorway following a crash.

The lane was cleared by 3.35pm, but traffic was backed up and motorists were asked to take care.

On the Southern Motorway, a breakdown was blocking the left lane citybound between Manukau and East Tamaki Rds.

Motorists should be prepared for delays, Waka Kotahi said at 4pm.
